The speedo was broke so I had it rebuilt and it came back set
to zero so the speedo only has about 700 miles on it. The gas gauge works but
oil press and temp does not. I have had the gauges out and tested them and they
both work so it is the sending unit or wire in between and have not had time to
troubleshoot it but I know the gauges are good.
I guess he “dodged
a bullet” as it didn’t appear to go thru the door panel on inside. The pass door
has a few little whiskey dents but nothing serious.
It is not a show car but presents well at car shows and turns
heads wherever it goes.
